"I found this in Bon Apetit magazine a few months ago. We love it. Note: the prep time includes marinating time."
Serving Size: 1 (175 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"We just finished eating this dish, and loved it. After 1 hour the lemon juice was starting to "cook" the chicken flesh, so don't leave it any longer. I cheated a bit and patted the fillets dry, then layed them on the baking tray, brushed the exposed side with oil and patted the crumb and herb mix thickly on that side only. This made them quick and easy to cook and serve-no trouble with crumbs falling off. We ate these with wedges and a salad and if I could give this lemony, herby, easy, low fat dish a ten I would!"
"I'm always looking for new, easy chicken recipes, and this one is definitely a keeper! All four members of the family thought it was great. I had too much of the breadcrumb mixture left over after dredging the chicken breasts . . . nextime, I'll probably cut the breadcrumbs down to 3/4 cup. "
"Well, I realize that from latest posts, that honesty is the best policy. Mine turned out WAY too lemony. I used fresh lemon juice, and marinated for about 50 minutes,instead of an hour, and we were all puckering up. I did like the taste and especially the smell of the fresh herbs,but had a bit of a problem getting the breading to stick to the chicken.We had mashed potatoes and broccoli spears with it - didn't need those lemon wedges on the side, however. Maybe I did something wrong. I would try it again, but maybe reduce the amount of lemon juice next time. But thanks! It's always fun to try something different."
"Loved the recipe. Unfortuneately my fresh herbs were not quite ready yet so I used dry ( 11/4 tsp basil, 3/4 tsp parsley,& 1/2 tsp rosemary) Very good but looking forward to using fresh next time. The chicken was moist and the lemon flavor was just right. Quick easy recipe - a keeper thanks PanNan"
"This was awesome. I added dried sage and parmesean cheese as well. Just Lovely! Thank for Posting."
"Awesome! This is the first time I have been able to achieve crispy breaded chicken in the oven, I'm not sure if it's from the oil/butter dip or the oven temp. Either way, this will be my go-to method in the future! My only complaint is that I reduced the recipe to serve 4 (about a pound of chicken) and it called for 1 cup of breadcrumbs, which turned out to be way too much. I hate to waste my homemade breadcrumbs. Next time, I will start with 1/2 cup. Other than the reduction of the recipe, I followed it exactly and it was perfect! Thanks so much for sharing"
"Perfect. I made enough for two and added the season without measuring. Just what looked like what we like. I marinated the breasts with the juice from half a lemon. Not lemony at all, just enough for a little flavor. I took the suggestion from the other reviews and added Parmesan cheese to the mix and a little to the top of the breasts. Used the convection roast feature on my oven and it came out crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside."
"Followed the recipe as written and thought it was absolutely delicious! Very simple to make."
"Great recipe! I will definitely be making this again. The chicken was so tender and had alot of flavor. The changes I made were only because of what I had on hand and also some of the other recommendations. I used seasoned whole wheat breadcrumbs(so I didn't add all the seasonings), parmasaen cheese and garlic salt. Otherwise everything was the same. Thanks for a great recipe."
"YUMMY! I used 3lbs of chicken breast with the listed quantity of everything else and it turned out very nicely. I used all dried herbs and mashed croutons for the breading. I served it with garlic mashed potatoes and corn casserole. This recipe is definitely a keeper!"
"I made this tonight for my 5 year old daughter and myself... I looooved it, and thought she would too- especially because I added Parmesan. Nope, she wouldn't eat it (too herby, perhaps?) Doesn't matter, I can't wait to make it for my husband, it is so delicious. I used panko breadcrumbs and added parm and garlic powder. Ridiculously tasty."
"This is phenomenal. I let the chicken soak in the lemon juice for a bit longer - the lemon flavor really goes well with the spices. The mount of breadcrumbs recommended are a bit much, but they still taste good ;)"
"Very good! I'm a poor college student so I kinda had to improvise and used what I had lying around. Used lime instead of lemon and all dried herbs. And didn't have dried breadcumbs so I used crushed Ritz crackers. But still so yummy!!!"
"My very picky fiance and 3 year old gobbled this chicken up. The only thing that I changed was the amount of breading on each chicken breast. I poured all of the extra mixture over the chicken breasts. I even made another batch of the bread crumbs while the chicken was cooking and put it in a tupperware container for next time."
"Delicious!!! The tastiest chicken I've had in ages, and it was easy to make. I used fresh parsley and rosemary, but I rehydrated some dried basil in water in the microwave instead of using fresh. The final dish tasted as if it came from an expensive restaurant. We paired it with a cold cucumber soup. We will definitely be making this again. Maybe every week :-) I might try putting the spices in a bag (a la Shake and Bake) instead of in a pie pan."
"Very nice recipe. Found this as a last minute alternative for my parents anniversary dinner. Chicken was still moist. Served with baked potatoes and salad. ONly thing I will work on next time is getting the crust to be crunchy on both sides. Overal, nice dinner!"
"It was pretty good! I didn't measure the lemon juice but just slightly sprinkle them on the chicken. Unfortunately I had a hard time to get the crumbs crunchy, maybe my chicken was not dried enough?"
"Easy and tasty!"
